Many higher education programs require students to submit their papers using APA writing style. Although there are a number of websites with APA writing style tips and examples, to the best of our knowledge, there is no actual online training program in APA—until now! Our online American Psychological Association (APA) writing style training course and competency exam service is the only such program currently available. While some sites may show examples of APA requirements or demonstration a few of the APA style requirements, ours is the only true education course on APA style that includes both interactive training along with an assessment of APA learning outcomes and style competency.
The online APA Writing Style training program includes 17 topical sections of the APA style. Each training section includes an overview summary, instructional content, and 5-20 interactive questions designed to reinforce the instructional content. Both correct and incorrect exams are shown so that students truly learn APA rather than just memorize a few style requirements. Interactive questions must be answered correctly before progressing to the next question, which helps ensure learning outcomes are met. The training course is 100% online. Using the APA manual is optional during the training course. Once purchased, the student has access to the materials for up to one year.
Additionally, there are supplemental files on the site that can be downloaded and saved for later reference. These supplemental files show how papers are supposed to be organized and written based on the APA Style requirements.
The APA Writing Style competency exam includes 50 true/false and multiple choice questions that cover all of the material included with the training course. Exam results can be part of the course grade for your students when our online APA service is included within a business course. The service can also be used for PDU, CEU, and/or Academic Credit status.
Including our APA services into your curriculum can be cost-neutral for the school when you use a customized micro-website with student self-registration and the students purchase the services using our secure e-commerce checkout. Alternatively, we can integrate the sale of the APA services with your online or campus bookstore so that the purchase of the materials by the students is included with the sale of the APA Style Manual and/or other required course textbooks. We have integrated and embedded our services with several delivery platforms and textbook providers. Integration/embedded services means seamless, cost-neutral delivery to your students.
